Udinese faces Torino
Udinese kicked off their Serie A campaign in a pretty average way, having a record of one win, one draw and one loss from the first three games. The Bianconeri started with a draw against Parma in the first round, which was followed by a win against Sampdoria at home. In the previous round, Udinese suffered their first defeat for the season, losing against Fiorentina in Florence.
Udinese had a difficult trip to the Stadio Artemio Franchi in the previous round. Julio Velasquez’ boys tried to win at least a point from the trip, but Marco Benassi’s goal in the second half gave Fiorentina the win.
Torino has the same amount of points after the first three rounds. The Bulls have 4 points and a record of one win, one draw and one loss. The team started its campaign in the Serie A with a loss at home against Roma, which was followed by a draw against Inter at the San Siro. In the previous round, Torino finally enjoyed their first win for the season, beating SPAL with 1-0 at home. The only goal in the game was scored by the central defender Nicolas N’Koulou at the beginning of the second half.
Only one position separates these two sides in the standings right now. The way they started the new season is absolutely identical. This means that most probably we will watch a pretty even game at the Dacia Arena in Udine. Of course, Udinese is a slight favourite because of their advantage to play at home, but it doesn’t mean that Torino will give up without a fight.
